Our opinion on the Central Beach

Adresse of the Central Beach : Boulevard Promenade Veyrier Montagnères 33120 Arcachon

Arcachon Beach is the most central beach in this seaside destination. It extends along boulevard de la Plage between piers Eyrac and Thiers for about 800 meters. We find several restaurants, cafes and shops along a nice promenade. We also have the Palais de Congres, the casino, chateau Deganne and the aquarium museum. This beach has a lifeguard during summer with a first-aid station between the two piers near rue Grenier (also handicap accessible).

Two parking lots are available: one on Place du Docteur Peyneau (near Eyrac pier) and the other on Place Carnot (edge of the beach going toward Pyla and the summer city of Arcachon).

We also find games for kids on this beach (inflatables) as well as kids' clubs.
